Trudeaus x2, The Charter, and Notwithstanding Chrétien

It’s small details like the disrespect of our flag that weaken our society and allow cowards and crooks to run things.

Respect for the flag is symbolic of respect for the Charter of Rights and Freedoms we are SUPPOSED to have.

I made this exact comment to the New Glasgow Police during my filing of complaints about their false arrest of me. I made a deliberate comment to the officer taking the paperwork that it’s disrespectful to have a dirty tattered flag infront of the police station. I’ve referred to corrupt officers in our town wearing that same flag and tarnishing it with their horsecockery and lack of ethics.

Same concept. Disrespect for the flag by people in charge of shaping society and running it demonstrates a lack of understanding and respect for the underlying values we are supposed to have.

Not saying Canada/church didn’t wreck indigenous families or do other horrible shit. What I’m saying is that in our country we have the ability to stand there and protest and hold politicians accountable in ways that aren’t possible in lots of places. THAT is one reason this matters.

Most corruption in our country and community is simply buried in beauracracy. Too much paperwork and cost to get the truth out.

If we had teachers and police and lawyers and social workers and doctors that truly understood what our rights are – the tattered flags wouldn’t need reminders. This is basic elementary school social studies.

That flag wasn’t made at the founding of the country so it’s not symbolic of the colonial torture. Flag was designed and agreed upon by Canadians in the 60s. Our Charter of Rights and Freedoms was established in the 80s.

The flag is symbolic in our shift toward better values. Doesn’t make up for 60s scoop or residential schools or the forced sterilizations or forced covid vaccinations or the invocation of the Emergencies Act by little-Castro… come to think of it, the Trudeaus did all of the short list above.

Papa Pierre was the 15th prime minister of Canada from 1968 to 1979 and from 1980 to 1984. He also briefly served as the leader of the Opposition from 1979 to 1980.

Look up “The Kitchen Accord”. That involves a Canadian lawyer and politician who served as the 20th prime minister of Canada from 1993 to 2003. That PM was Jean Cretien. Cretien is responsible for the notwithstanding clause. One of my conspiracy theories is that Elder Trudeau actually so wanted the notwithstanding clause but couldn’t support it publicly.

In a nutshell – some Charter rights are subject to the notwithstanding clause (section 33).

Between when the flag was made and the Charter was made law there were 17 years, of that time Papa Trudeau was PM for 11 years.

Between when the charter was codified into law and now we are looking at 40 years.

In that time-frame, the PM was either a Trudeau or a Chretien for 19 of the 40 years since the Charter was made law.

That means the same small group of insiders gave us the illusion of rights with a caveat they can make up reasons to strip you of them.

Our flag was made before our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The Charter is there to protect us but the same family / clubs in power now in Canada set things up this way. As long as they have ‘zee papers’ filled out properly, they can do anything they want. It doesn’t matter if the judge or politician approving the override of your rights just came out of a closed door meeting with the person asking them to do so (re: conduct of PM Trudeau 2 in regard to Jodi Wilson Raybould and SNC Lavalin / deferred prosecution).

It’s all fugazi.

TLDR: Anyone who disagrees with OP better come back with a valid criticism of the government instead of a lazy empty response like “It’s just a piece of fabric!!!”.

Someone commented with a photo of the Nova Scotian flag – solid. Agree. Great counter, even if sarcastic. Valid point. Our government is fugazi and our rights are pretend. Our current flag represents the rights we had before the Trudeaus and their old boys club gave us the illusion of more rights with a caveat they can disappear them when they feel like it.

Oppression is done in our country through slow painful expensive beauracracy.

Better have another “commission” or “committee”.


What Canada’s Oil Sands and The Tobacco Industry Have in Common: Part 2 – The Electronic Cigarette Strategy

Before you read this; make sure you read What Canada’s Oil Sands and The Tobacco Industry Have in Common: Part 1.

Part One focused on the oil and gas industry. Lets explore my thoughts about the strategies and end-game of the tobacco industry in regards to electronic cigarettes. Strategies that I would argue are similar to those used by the oil industry.

In the end, it all comes down to the bottom-line. Especially for a tobacco CFO sitting in a corner office atop a lofty building in a major city centre.

How many quitters would it take for them to notice?

How many people in Fort Chipewyan with cancer until we say, “Let’s try something else.”?

In Canada – it took about five thousand smokers on the East Coast to quit for them to notice. Five thousand individuals who walked away from hanging a burning coal at the end of their lip. Five thousand individuals who chose a safer alternative method of nicotine delivery.

As I noted in Part One; I’m not a doctor. I’m an objective observer of the world around me. Using common sense and a touch of basic research – I compared the ingredients and chemicals in electronic cigarettes to those common in tobacco cigarettes.

As a former smoker; I was familiar with the benefits of ingesting nicotine.

I quit several years ago after my child was born with the aid of the Nicorette Inhaler. Essentially I inhaled a nicotine-laced vapor from a tiny tube that resembled a female sanitary product.

It tasted awful; but it worked. Sort of like Buckleys.


Before we get started; have you done your research on the topic of electronic cigarettes?

If yes; skip the links.

If no; check some of the links – you may learn something new.

Electronic cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes are not the same thing.

If they treat them that way:

  • The tobacco companies get to capitalize on it and crush the independent businesses that built this niche market.
  • 5000 people in Canada could smoke again if their ability to vape was hindered; $10/pack. Most of them every day.
  • Most of that money will land in bank accounts of companies that were built on selling you a product, at a premium, that you literally can’t stop buying. That also kills you slowly.
  • Not to mention all of the extra time sucking back tar, benzene, carbon-monoxide, polonium.

They push for strong and immediately implemented legislation that calls for research; without doing a bit of research themselves.

Honestly, the thing feels like your smoking a cigarette. In your lungs. But it tastes better. It’s awesome. But there are only three or four ingredients that you are inhaling and there is no smoke involved.

Nothing ever got better because the government jumped in prematurely and with the wrong information.
